BIRMINGHAM, United States (AFP) - A 10th Baptist church has been set ablaze in Alabama in less than two weeks, and authorities are searching for two men they believe are setting the fires and terrorizing the people of the southern US state.
Yesterday, I watched HBO films, Boycott. It was a memoir like account of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. leading the Montgomery Bus Boycotts in 1955. Most of the movie is historical non-fiction, but for the sake of television drama and to create empathy for King and his relationship with Coretta Scott King some accounts our fictionalized (.i.e, the time it takes for the boycott to end has sped up, Martin's red pajama's, hanging out in a jook joint to remind citizens of the boycotts.) These little touches give the story more appeal and fiber. And our therefore, necessary.
As the mystery to the church bombings in Alabama begin to unfold, I wonder what type of story would come of this, since the churches are an equal mix of predominately black and white churches. Perhaps this is a time to extend the King's dream and united churches regardless of race.
If you have HBO, you can check out Boycott this week.
